c++ - SC name conflicts with NT Service cmd

Hi
I am running Windows XP.
I have installed digital mars and updated the PATH to first point to the 
dmars directory.

When in my C source directory, I launch SC.EXE, the program which is 
invoked is a Microsoft NT service Controller and services. I have to put 
the full program path.

Another point : when I run scppn, I get the error "Fatal error: unable to 
open input file 'typeinfo.h'". sc.exe compiles without error.

Any similar experience and fix ?

Thx

Or use "dmc.exe" instead of "sc.exe"

sc.exe/dmc.exe sets some environment variables (defined in sc.ini) so that scppn knows where to look for standard include files - you shouldn't run scppn directly. bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?

I have run into this from time to time. You need to ensure that your DMC

the NT version)

As you can see from the "PATH=%COMP_BIN%;%PATH%;" line, the DMC path is set
to take priority over the existing, system, path. You're more than welcome
to take whatever parts of this may be useful to you.

BTW, if you want a little help working with environment variables, you can
download the Environment Variable Expander from
http://www.synesis.com.au/r_systools.html. Simply typing "nvx PATH" or
"nvx -p" at the command line will give you an ordered list of the current
PATH setting, as in the following for one of my machines
